About the flag

The flag of F.D.S. is shown in both ballot papers reported (#8 in Bissau-28 and #7 in Bissau-29). It is a green flag with the party emblem centered on it — a yellow ear of rice within a yellow ring, under the letters F.D.S., set arched above the ring set in black sans-serif capitals. The flag ratio is roughly 3:5, oblonger than most others’ in the ballot papers are.
